A very spe­cial paint­ing

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - CONTENTS -

Lou­vre Abu Dhabi will be the new home of a Leonardo Da Vinci paint­ing from Septem­ber 18. The $450 mil­lion Sal­va­tor Mundi mas­ter­piece is one of fewer than 20 known sur­viv­ing works by the Ital­ian Re­nais­sance artist. The 500-year old oil panel paint­ing was pur­chased at a Christie’s auc­tion for Dhs1.65 bil­lion, mak­ing it the most ex­pen­sive piece of art­work ever sold.
